PRACTICING DHARMA IN DAILY LIFE
One serious result of the tsunami that hit Japan in March was the damage to several nuclear reactors. Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave a list of advice for those concerned about the effects of radiation:
- Wear protections of White Umbrella Deity and Lion Faced Dakini. (These need to be made correctly and blessed.)
- Wear White Umbrella Deity text (This text can be reduced in size and worn respectfully on the body, such as in a small pouch around your neck. It could also be put on microfilm and worn like an amulet. If the text is reduced, the letters should still be clear.)
- Take the initiation of White Umbrella Deity.
- White Umbrella Deity practice. (Note: Without empowerment, one cannot do self-generation, but instead can visualize deity in front of oneself.)
- Sadhana ombrelle blanche en français.
